Electric mainline tractor from designers Ferrari Testarossa, Jaguar XJ Spider and Honda Prelude. Concept Xingtu has a very short range
The Chinese giant Baidu, represented by its subsidiary DeepWay, introduced the Xingtu electric truck, which was designed by the legendary Pininfarina coachbuilder.
The design in this case is futuristic, but it is quite possible to say that it echoes the Tesla Semi. At the same time, the inside of the car is no less interesting than the outside. You can see huge displays below and above, as well as displays in the racks that replace the rear-view mirrors.
So far this is just a concept. The company did not say anything about plans to launch such a machine, but there are many technical details, even if they do not make much sense.
DeepWay talks about 11 cameras, an infrared detector, radars and lidars, which ultimately allows the machine to detect objects at a distance of up to 1 km. Of course, the autopilot is declared.
The drag coefficient here is 0.35. Due to this, with a battery with a capacity of 450 kWh, which is not much for a mainline tractor, the cruising range should be 300 km. True, this is just very little for a tractor. But a full charge should take only one hour, and you can replace the battery in six minutes.
The brainchild of BYD and Mercedes-Benz: presented crossover Denza N8
BYD introduced the new Denza N8 crossover, which is an upgraded version of the BYD Tang model.
The announcement turned out to be formal: the manufacturer published the first images, but did not disclose details about the technical component of Denza N8.
According to Chinese Automobiles, Denza N8 will be available with hybrid and pure electric powertrains. In addition, it is known that buyers will be able to choose between the number of seats in the cabin (5, 6 or 7).
The original BYD Tang was released in 2015, a second generation followed in 2018 and is still in production today. In 2019, Denza X was released based on this model, which was created in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz. Denza N8 replaces Denza X.
Prices and other details about the Denza N8 will be made public later.
Tesla GigaBier introduced. It’s already available for purchase.
Tesla has released a limited edition Cybertruck-themed GigaBier beer. Beer is offered for $30.
It is worth recognizing that this is not the first original idea from Elon Musk’s companies. Previously, The Boring Company offered flamethrowers and Burnt Hair cologne with the smell of burnt hair, and Tesla released a Cyberwhistle in the spirit of Cybertruck. Of course, there was Tesla branded tequila. By the way, at the time of its announcement, they also thought that this was an April Fool’s joke.
The Tesla GigaBier bottle is designed to mimic the shape of the Cybertruck, paying homage to the 500-year-old Reinheitsgebot tradition of German brewing. Enjoy this beer brewed in Berlin with our exclusive Cyberhops and notes of citrus, bergamot and sweet fruit. Each bottle has a glow-in-the-dark Giga logo.
Tesla is selling a pack of three beers for 89 euros.
The Chinese sat down Qualcomm and Nvidia? China launches its own 7nm SoC for cars with 8-core CPU, 14-core GPU and LPDDR5 memory support
Many cars are now equipped with Qualcomm SoCs (which are responsible for both multimedia capabilities and driver assistance systems) and Nvidia Drive systems-on-a-chip (for advanced autonomous driving functions). But China managed to release a competitor, if not to Nvidia platforms, then to Qualcomm for sure: mass production of the 7-nanometer SoC Dragon Eagle No. 1 for use in cars (so-called “digital cockpit systems”).
Wang Kai, CEO of SiEngine Technology, said work on Dragon Eagle No. 1 was carried out for three years. During this time, the system was developed, verified, tested and launched into mass production.
SoC includes all standard components including 8-core CPU, 14-core GPU, LPDDR5-6400 memory controller, 8 TOPS Neural Processor (AI Task Accelerator), ISP, DSP clusters and other typical Components.
It is reported that as early as the middle of the year, many new car models will be released in China that will use the Dragon Eagle No. 1. Among these automakers are Geely and FAW.
